Accommodation : Room attached to Kitchen, the open courtyard Gazebo or if need be Tents. Volunteers need to be flexible about changing sleeping arrangements. We may move you from one accommodation type to another should the need arise depending on our number of volunteers that may be needed from time to time.
Food : Access to kitchen where a fridge and basic cooking facilities that will be provided and where you can prepare your own type of meals based on your preference. On food, you would need to buy your own groceries at the nearby supermarkets which are fairly cheap (about 20 - 25 euros per week for two persons).
Off Working Hours : During our volunteers' time off, they are encouraged to relax and enjoy the nature. The natural surroundings include the spectacular views of the rivers, waterfalls, hot water springs and exploring the jungle and mountain peaks. As the country lodge is close to the Hulu Langat Forest Reserve, self-arranged tours and jungle trekking excursions can be made at the forest trails and to the mountain peaks with stops at beautiful Sungai Tekali and Sungai Gabai Waterfalls and as well as the rejuvenating Dusun Tua Hot Water Springs. Experience the lifestyle of the local community and to the unique local culture and traditions.
